The A-E firm selected shall primarily provide professional design services with advanced estimating for repair, replace and alteration projects in Federal Office Buildings, Federal Courthouses and Land Ports of Entry. "Design" primarily includes project site observations, design in phases, construction documents, design clarifications and record drawings. "Estimating" primarily includes budget estimates, market analysis, detailed construction estimating in phases and bid technical analysis. More than 50% of GSA owned buildings qualify for historic designation. Estimates are required to be within +/- 5% and must have shell and tenant improvement breakdowns. Construction cost on the majority of projects is less than Prospectus level (currently $3.095 million). Disciplines required in task orders will primarily be architectural, mechanical, electrical, fire/life safety, estimating specialist and sometimes structural. While these building types, tasks, disciplines and expertise are needed for a significant percentage of orders, other building types, tasks, disciplines and expertise will be required. Therefore, adaptability should be demonstrated. Other tasks and related disciplines examples include the full range of building sciences that Architects and Engineers can provide such as detailed project inspections, project investigations, pre-planning services, design programming, optimizing design selections, Feasibility Studies, sustainability, risk assessments; civil design, Boundary and topographical surveying, pavement rehabilitation; energy conservation audits, equipment load measurements; blast resistance studies, seismic studies, high-wind resistance design and physical security design. Other areas such as Cost Management Services including preparation of all forms of budgets, cost modeling, market research, economic studies, multiple-stage estimating with specific breakout totals, complex budgetary control with oversight management and analysis. Nominal invasive investigation for the building and systems, subsystems, components, equipment, and materials addressing such critical features as building walls/glazing, roofing, HVAC equipment, plumbing, electrical systems; diagnostics expertise required for problem identification and resolution including thermography, acoustic performance, lighting quality, moisture content in material, air/water conditions, contaminant level measurements. Other tasks might be Construction Management and Inspection, Construction Observation, advanced quality control monitoring with related testing and multi-phased turnover services. Commissioning and start-up planning, including forecasting start-up duration, estimating start-up costs, determining start-up objectives, developing technical services requirements for performance standards and goals, start-up with calibration. Obtaining O&M material, plus scheduling and/or supervising O&M training. Post Construction Services, such as performing one-year post-occupancy reporting analysis, facilities performance evaluations, post-occupancy systems management with diagnostics.
